Yas Waterworld in its initiative to celebrate the Year of Tolerance won the Guinness World Record title for gathering the 'Most Nationalities in a Swimming Pool" on Friday, 12 April.
The event that saw 102 nationalities come together to represent the values of co-existence and tolerance, was held in the presence of the Guinness World Record representatives.
Leander De Wit, General Manager of Yas Waterworld said, "It fills me with an immense amount of pride to be able to celebrate this milestone record in honour of the Year of Tolerance, which was made possible thanks to the co-existence of cultures and rich diversity that we are blessed to have in the UAE."
Taking the park to the Guinness World Book of Records, the participants stood in the Amwaj Wave Pool with their home countries’ flag. The waterpark's guests from across the globe then went on to enjoy a fun-filled day at the waterpark with more than 40 rides and other attractions.
